2018 primary

Illinois attorney general candidate Sharon Fairley is outlining steps she would take to root corruption as the state’s top attorney.

Fairley says if elected she’d create a hotline for reporting corruption - and push legislation to strengthen the state’s legislative and executive watchdogs - among other proposals.

FAIRLEY: "I don’t think there’s enough energy, focus or attention right now in the office. And there’s a lot of work to be done."

The Illinois State Board of Elections voted to allow Scott Drury, a Democratic candidate for Attorney General, to remain on the ballot.

Drury is a state representative and that's where confusion arose.

There is a crowded field of Democrats running in the March 2018 primary for Illinois' 13th Congressional district. But, one of the candidates is familiar to voters.

David Gill of Normal is making his sixth run for congress. Illinois Public Media’s Mark Schultz recently spoke with Gill, who says he is the best candidate to defeat incumbent Republican Rodney Davis.

He’s running against Betsy Dirksen-Londrigan, Jon Ebel, Erik Jones, and Angel Sides in the March 20, 2018 Democratic primary.
